#44 Superfoods from a Super Founder - Nafy Flatley, Teranga

Play

It's about hospitality. Literally. The Senegalese word Teranga means hospitality and Nafy Flately imbues the word in her products. All the juices and snacks, super foods all, come from a variety of ingredients, but mainly from the Baobab tree, which is considered the "tree of life" for all the incredible levels of nutritious ingredients it offers. In Senegal, baobab is a natural remedy for many ailments. It has more Vitamin C than oranges, more magnesium than kale, more potassium than bananas, more calcium than milk and is high in soluble fiber. Whew! In fact, one of the bottles of juice or one of her snacks is really a meal, which can make a trip to the grocery store faster. Which has also made for an interesting wrinkle during the pandemic: Teranga has built up enough consumer awareness that people have been ordering her foods, picking them up or even getting local home delivery. Makes sense. Nafy got the inspiration from early memories of her Grandmother using the Baobab fruit to make snacks and juices for the grandchildren and when her family moved to the US, she and her mother continued the tradition.

She was named the 2019 “Chef to Watch” by Eater and a Best New Chef by Food & Wine and awarded the Vilcek Prize for Creative Promise in Culinary Arts. After serving her Cambodian dishes in various pop-ups, she opened Nyum Bai, which was quickly named one of the best restaurants in the country by several publications. “More importantly,” cookbook author Samin Nosrat writes about Nite for the TIME 100 Next list, “she is changing America’s relationship to Cambodia, one exquisite dish at a time.”

Nafy Flatley is the founder of TERANGA, which produces a range of products—from juices to popsicles—that use the baobab superfood of her native Senegal. Nafy grew up enjoying baobab and visiting her grandparents’ village, which surrounded a large baobab tree.
